Book reviews: A Dance in Donegal, The Paris Betrayal, and Bookshop by the Sea

Hi, everyone. A few weeks ago I introduced you to another website I launched earlier this year: Clean Fiction Book Reviews. In case you haven’t hopped over there yet, here are links to the latest reviews I’ve posted. I hope you’ll stop by and subscribe if you enjoy getting the scoop on books across different genres.

A Dance in Donegal by Jennifer DreibelA Dance in Donegal by Jennifer Deibel

Genre: Historical romance

Moira moved to Ireland to begin a teaching career — and get some answers about her mother’s past. That wasn’t all she found.

Rich details that help life in Ireland during that era come alive; lovable characters who teach lessons about faith, trust, and family even in the simplest of lives. This is Deibel’s debut novel and she’s an author to watch if you enjoy historical romance, especially stories set in Europe rather than the U.S.

 

The Paris Betrayal by James R HannibalThe Paris Betrayal by James R. Hannibal

Genre: Thriller

When everything — and everyone — you’ve counted on is gone, where do you turn? Especially when you’re a spy?

Constant twists and turns that take the reader from Italy to Paris to the U.S. and kept me guessing until the end. Super refreshing to read a thriller that was a fantastic, well-written story without the graphic language and scenes that can be so prevalent in this genre. Hannibal’s military background takes the realism to the next level. 

 

Bookshop by the Sea by Denise HunterBookshop by the Sea by Denise Hunter

Genre: Contemporary romance

An approaching hurricane, a stranded ex-boyfriend and a bookshop scheduled to open in a few weeks. What could possibly go wrong?

Fun, lighthearted, second-chance romance with characters who grew a lot but stayed believable. This was the perfect beach read while we were out of town and I can see myself reading it again when I’m in the mood for a pick-me-up book. Denise Hunter is the queen of heartwarming, small-town love stories.

What are you reading lately? I’m always looking for new books and authors to try. Leave a note in the comments to share.
